Leadership Skills • Leadership skills are the tools, behaviours, and capabilities that a person needs in order to be successful at motivating and directing others. • Yet true leadership skills involve something more; the ability to help people grow in their own abilities. It can be said that the most successful leaders are those that drive others to achieve their own success. Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat

  6. 6. Leadership Styles • The Autocratic Leadership Style • The Democratic Leadership Style • The Bureaucratic Leadership Style • The Charismatic Leadership Style Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat
  7. 7. The Autocratic Leadership Style Characteristics • The autocratic leader chooses to make the majority of decisions on his or her own. These leaders prefer to keep control and responsibility over the projects that they are assigned. This means that they are not very likely to delegate decision making to others. They prefer a clear structure and set rigid expectations. These leaders rarely consult with others and aren't very interested in developing their own skills or those of their employees. This style of leadership is rather oldfashioned now, but it still exists because there are times when Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat it still works best.
  8. 8. The Autocratic Leadership Style When to Use It: Good times to use this style are: • Short-term, complex, technical, or urgent projects • Low-skilled positions with monotonous tasks that can lead to low motivation • Where there is high turnover in the employees so keeping organizational knowledge in a leader is important Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat
  9. 9. The Democratic Leadership Style Characteristics • The democratic leadership style is just what you would think it's all about making decisions as a group. The team shares the responsibility for making the decisions, making changes, and making deadlines. The leader delegates a great deal of the work, letting others have a say in what portion of the work they take on. The leader seeks continual feedback and looks for opportunities for development for both himself and his team. This is a popular style because when it is done well, it creates a harmonious, productive, Bhagwat work force. Trainings by Vidya evolving
  10. 10. The Democratic Leadership Style When to Use It • The democratic style is useful when it's important that every member of the team contributes their own creativity and knowledge to the process. When you are ready to prioritize training and team development and take the time needed to give everyone a chance to contribute, this style can produce great results. It is a good way to create a new team of people who have not worked together before and need to get in gear quickly. Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat
  11. 11. The Bureaucratic Leadership Style Characteristics • In a bureaucratic leadership arrangement, the focus for the leader is on making certain that employees follow the rules with consistency. This style became very popular when the industrial era began because factory work requires specific rules and procedures in order to ensure consistent quality and to protect the health and safety of the workers. In this leadership situation, the leader gains authority more from his position than for other reasons. Employees are rewarded for being able to follow the rules and producing Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat consistently rather than for innovation or brainstorming. The environment tends to be more formal, with clear distinctions between the leaders and their employees.
  12. 12. The Bureaucratic Leadership Style When to Use It • If the desire is to produce the image of regulation and control, the bureaucratic leadership style is a good choice. It is also a natural choice for organizations where there need to be rigid controls over health and safety measures. Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat
  13. 13. The Charismatic Leadership Style Characteristics • With this style, the main characteristic is the leader's ability to inspire others. They do so through commitment to a vision which they are charged with communicating to their team. It is possible that the leader will actually have to create the vision as well, requiring the ability to generate excitement in others about new, possibly risky ideas. It takes a great deal of energy to be a charismatic leader because it requires taking advantage of every opportunity to 'sell' the team on the vision and mission of the organization. Some members of the team will be easy to Trainings by Vidya Bhagwat inspire, while others will be 'sold' more slowly or, unfortunately, not at all. This style depends on the leader's ability to build trust with team members by demonstration personal integrity.
  14. 14. The Charismatic Leadership Style When to Use It • When commitment to a vision is the most important aspect of a team's functioning, the charismatic leadership style can work well. Particularly if there is the need to work quickly, work hard, and get a new company, division, or product off the ground. It can also be helpful to rejuvenate an organization where team members have gotten stale or disheartened. When companies seek to recreate their image in the face of the public, they Vidyaoften put forth a Trainings by will Bhagwat charismatic leader as the representative of the 'new' element.
